Praise Of Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva 地藏赞

地藏赞   

地藏菩萨妙难伦,化现金容处处分。
三途六道闻妙法,四生十类蒙慈恩。
明珠照彻天堂路,金锡振开地狱门。
累劫亲姻蒙接引,九莲台畔礼慈尊。

南无九华山幽冥世界
大慈大悲本尊地藏王菩萨。

南无地藏王菩萨。

Praise Of Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva

Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva’s wonders are difficult to compare,
as he manifests his golden countenance everywhere.

Beings of the three realms and six paths hear his wonderful Dharma,
and those of the four births and ten kinds receive his benevolent kindness.

His bright gem illuminates thoroughly heaven’s road,
and his golden staff jolts open hell’s gates.

Many kalpas’ relatives who received his guidance,
by the nine lotus thrones’ shore [of Amitābha Buddha’s Pure Land]
prostrate to the kind and honoured one.

Homage to Mount Jiǔhuá’s and hell realm’s
one with great loving-kindness and great compassion,
the fundamentally honoured Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva.

Homage to Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva.
